Painting and Cinema: Rohmer & Fuseli

We would like to start with a series of posts examining the intricate rapport between painting and cinema.

Nestor Almendros, Erich Rohmer’s director of photography has never hidden the fact that he has been directly inspired by cinema when shooting “Marquise d’O”(1976). Let us re-visit the first image, the famed still shot of the Marquise in complete distress. And then, consider “The Nightmare” by Swiss painter Henry Fuseli (1781). There will be more to come each week.
